The Toronto Raptors are probably not too happy with Drake right now.
ESPN reports that the Toronto Raptors have been fined $25,000 because Drake, who just so happens to be their Global Ambassador, made a comment at recent concert which the NBA has deemed a violation of its anti-tampering rules.
According to reports, Drake brought Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant on stage during his OVO Festival in Toronto and asked him to play for the Toronto Raptors.
“Before we leave, I just want to show one of my brothers something,” Drake told the crowd. “You know, my brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what would happen.” ESPN states that the crowd broke out into cheer and started a “KD” chant.
According to ESPN’s NBA sources, this has been deemed as a public recruiting pitch which just so happens to be punishable by fine. We are guessing that Toronto’s management will be keeping a closer eye on the 26-year-old but we are pretty sure that by now, $25,000 is nothing to the “0 to 100” rapper.
